BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- Alexander Frolov and the Los Angeles
Kings hope to pick up where they left off when they visit the
Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
Frolov recorded his second career hat trick and Mathieu Garon
made 30 saves Thursday as the Kings cruised to a 6-0 victory
over the Boston Bruins.
It was the second shutout this season and the sixth career for
Garon, who has posted a .924 save percentage over his last 17
Los Angeles needed the victory Thursday after opening its
four-game road trip with consecutive losses. Dustin Brown
scored a goal and assisted on another in the contest for the
Kings, who have dropped four of their last six road games.
The Kings will need to duplicate their effort from Thursday if
they want to beat a Sabres squad which boasts a 19-4-3 record
Buffalo jumped out to an early lead Thursday before losing a 2-1
shootout decision to the Phoenix Coyotes.
Rookie Jason Pominville scored the lone goal for the Sabres, who
have dropped three of their last four at home.
